Imagine being enveloped in tranquillity. Soft music playing, delicate aromas of essential oils fill the air. Cathy’s treatments provide your body with the relaxation to allow your mind to be set free and drift, no worries and no stress for one quiet, blissful hour.
Providing Relaxation for Wellbeing
* Facial reflexology was developed over a number of years by Lone Sorensen, a Danish reflexologist and acupuncturist. It is particularly effective as the points on the face are directly related to the central nervous system so positive results come quickly.
A typical treatment is either 30 minutes or one hour with the client lying on a massage table fully clothed, while the face and scalp are worked on. It is a very relaxing and gentle treatment with clients often falling asleep then awakening with renewed energy.
My name is Cathy Hamilton and I have always had an interest in natural medicine for my own health and that of my family.
I stumbled upon Reflexology while attending short interest courses at The College of Natural Medicine in Christchurch and I was amazed by how relaxed yet energised I felt after a treatment. After doing some research into the principal behind reflexology – (that it has been used in some form or another by most cultures for many thousands of years) I decided to study a 2 year diploma qualifying mid 2010.
Working from home allows me time to indulge in my other passion of cooking healthy, nutritious meals for my family. I also enjoy getting outside to exercise everyday, either walking or on my bike. I’m a keen gardener and also enjoy dabbling in art and reading, especially keeping up to date on the latest health trends etc.
I love the way Reflexology works on many levels, not only physical but also emotional and I enjoy seeing my clients relax and report back many benefits.
I have lived and travelled throughout Asia and experienced many different styles of Reflexology, enlightening my own practice to include the Chinese Meridians Philosophy. Looking at a person as a whole and not just a symptom, helps to make an individual treatment plan, working together on a journey to wellbeing and peace.
While living in Sydney I worked in a Natural Health practice along with a Chiropractor; Massage Therapist; Acupuncturist; Naturopath and Counsellors. I also volunteered at a Dialysis Clinic
treating patients with reflexology while they were having kidney dialysis. I feel privileged to have joined many people on their journey to health and wellbeing while also providing a positive support for those nearing life’s end.
Many pregnant clients have enjoyed regular treatments with me. I use the Gentle Birth Method approach using visualisation of the perfect outcome on birthing day. I have also performed many ‘priming for Labour’ techniques using acupressure points to induce labour in full term mums. It is truly a joy to be involved during this very special time in a women’s life.
My wish is for Reflexology to be more accepted mainstream medicine. Working alongside as a complementary therapy to Western medicine as it is in many Asian countries.

I had a great session today and left very sleepy and relaxed completely opposite to how I arrived! Thanks again I’m looking forward to coming back.
Cath is an amazing reflexologist who I can’t recommend highly enough. I have many massage treatments all round the world and in various styles and I have never been made to feel as comfortable and relaxed as I do with Cath. Her approach is professional, yet gentle and caring. Can’t wait for my next treatment.
Cathy has an amazing touch. I thoroughly enjoyed my session I had with her – think I dozed off A truly gifted lady, who’s able to provide you with a wealth of knowledge on caring for yourself.
